Edgewood Parking Lot Safety Reminders
Parking lot: 
1) Parents need to enter the churchparking lot from Vanderlip ONLY. We want to have one way traffic in that parking lot. If parents ask another person (grandparent, friend etc) to pick/drop off their child, they need to inform that person of the procedure.
2) Parents need to slow down in all the parking lots. Please no speeding.
3) No parking on the red curb.
4) No running in the parking lots.
5) Children need to stay by their parents' side in the parking lot at all times.

The Golden Ticket
Deniz was the student randomly selected to share a meal with Mrs. Kaneski on Friday April 8, 2011.  Deniz's name was selected from a tub of yellow tickets each with names of students who have shown exceptional character during the last week.  If you know Deniz, then you know what a blessing she is to her teacher and to those around her. Deniz never puts herself first, but considers the feelings of others before her own.  Thank you, Deniz for sharing breakfast with me. I loved our time together.

3rd Grade to Irvine Outdoor Education Center
Last Friday, third grade embarked on a brand new field trip to Irvine Regional Outdoor Education Center.  This was actually our second attempt since the first scheduled field trip was postponed due to weather.  Students were giddy with anticipation as we board the bus Friday morning.  When we arrived students began the field trip with a gorgeous nature hike where science and social studies came together as they explored the adaptations of native plants and animals and their interdependence and their interaction with non-native species. While on the hike students also learned about the interactions of plant and animal species with Native Americans and early European settlers. Nutrient and water cycles came to life through hands-on activities at our solar, wind, and hand-powered well.  They also got investigate the ranch's citrus grove where more than 30 different species of citrus plants are grown and tended too.  The third graders were ecstatic when they learned that they could actually pick and eat some of the oranges and lemons.  The field trip wouldn't be complete without a hard hat, hammering, and shoveling in the ranches rock mine.   This was a field trip they would never forget and we'll definitely keep for next year. 

1st Grade Presentation
Mrs. Brown's class took part in a wonderful Persian New Year celebration presented by Mrs. Khashayar.  Mrs. Khashayar taught us about this beautiful celebration and brought in a beautiful display of symbols that their family uses to honor this Persian tradition.  We learned how intertwined the celebration is with nature and the beginning of wonderful things to come in the new year.  Thank you for your hard work and amazing presentation!
